Occam's Reader NOT a good thing
I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that I think Occam's Reader is a really bad idea and potentially harmful. The access it provides is subpar compared to the original access that Springer allows. Researchers will not accept the inability to search or save or print.
Occam's Reader appeases publishers at a time when we should be pushing publishers to provide equal shared access. Other publishers will latch on to this solution that serves their purposes while really doing a disservice to our library patrons.
